Star sees a commercial for a “magical” Earth product and sets off on her own to buy it, but the mission goes south when her lack of earth knowledge gets her into serious trouble.
Star is facing harsh boredom and decides that she has had enough. Literally taking a page from a magazine, she becomes transfixed on the Banagic Wand. Believing it to be real "Earth magic", she tells Marco of her finding which results in them watching a commercial for the product, which simply takes bananas and turns them into banana frozen yogurt. She begs him to take her to "a better store" to buy said product, but Marco has a karate lesson that he needs to get to. They take his bike and he drops her off so that he can take the class, leaving Star to her own devices.
Star travels to a record store and then, at the direction of a passerby who used the term "better store", ends up at a pirate themed restaurant. Believing them to be real pirates, Star creates a whole mess of the place until she is stopped by the manager and informed that they are not real pirates. Embarrassed, she flees with the staff in hot pursuit. She manages to find the store, but ends up leading the staff into it (no thanks to a ticked off Brittney). Meanwhile Marco is tasked by Sensei Brantley to walk across hot coals with Jeremy once again mocking Marco. After facing intense scrutiny, Marco chases Jeremy and unknowingly manages to walk across the coals, which upon realizing, still burns his feet.
Star finds the Banagic Wand, but gets cornered by the pirate staff. With no other option, Star presents the product to the pirates by repeating what she heard in the commercial. After a brief moment, they seem to be into it. Marco returns home to take Star, but sees her eating frozen banana yogurt with the pirates who have all joined in. Star proudly declares how she has mastered Earth which Marco congratulates her on. He admits that he has underestimated her and apologizes. However, this remark surprises Star and she responds by pushing the yogurt out his hand and claiming that there was a fly on it.

- For unknown reasons, this episode never aired in some countries in Europe like England, France, Spain and Portugal.
- Star still has very little grasp over Earth customs, even though she claims to have mastered it.
- This episode is widely regarded as possibly the weakest in the series due to its slow pace, unusual balance of humor and Star and Marco's out of character personalities.
- While the ending has also been criticized for what many perceived as being somewhat confusing and irregular (Star is offended when Marco admits he underestimated her that she slowly knocks a bowl of banana yogurt out of his hands), it does foreshadow Star's eventual graduation and maturity. In "Into the Wand", Star sarcastically refers to herself as "Star the Underestimated" due to many people viewing her as immature and something of a "problem child". Her reaction to hearing that Marco underestimated her feeds into her immature way of handling the news.
